I posted for the first time the other day for help with our Paris Museum Passes for mid-February & now I'm not even sure we're going to get to use them :( . I read in the news that there are RATP/transport strikes scheduled on the date we're supposed to arrive in Paris via Eurostar from London (the Unsa-RATP union wants workers to make our arrival date "black Monday for public transport"). Though most of our itinerary is walkable, I am a bit concerned as sites may be closed if employees can't get to work, from what I've read. My main questions are:
Would Eurostar be involved in the strike? We are arriving via Eurostar on the day the strike starts--will our travel into Paris be delayed/affected? We are within walking distance of Gare du Nord, so we should not have an issue getting to where we're staying. I just want to know that we will be able to get to Paris.
We are only in Paris for a few days. I think these strikes continue for several days/weeks, so I am concerned about us being able to leave from CDG to go home. My first issue is that my daughter is leaving on a flight several hours before us (she needs to be at the airport by 8:30 a.m.) and needs to make her way to the airport by herself. What is the best way for her to get there safely at that hour if there are strikes going on and traffic may be very heavy due to the strikes? Same for the rest of us who will be leaving a few hours later. Our plane tickets are non-refundable/non-changeable, so we are stuck leaving from Paris as we would forfeit the entire ticket if we make any changes.
Issue of lesser concern is wondering if the Eiffel Tower refunds tickets if there is a strike. I can't seem to find any positive information about that.
Thanks in advance for your help! Any advice would be appreciated!
